I'm not usually much for deep frying, but wanted to try my hand at this recipe, & surprise, surprise, it worked out great! Wonderfully flavorful, & now I plan to include more of these little tasties on my finger food counter the next time I host one of my monthly gatherings! Many thanks for sharing the recipe!
